  5. Philippine folklore is filled with gruesome and frightening creatures guaranteed to cause fear and terror among the populace. 1. Manananggal The Manananggal butchers human prey and feasts on its heart and liver. Imagine seeing a half-bodied, flying creature with wild, flaming eyes and sharp teeth, hungrily searching for its next victim. A manananggal is a beautiful female by day who turns into blood-devouring monster at night. At midnight, especially on a full moon, it applies a special oil on its body while chanting a prayer. Fangs, claws, and wings emerge until the manananggal separates from its upper torso, usually with its guts hanging out. 2. Tikbalang Walking past big, old trees, and suddenly smelling a whiff of tobacco would alert the unwary to the sight of the Tikbalang! The tikbalang is half-human, half-horse. It commonly plays tricks on its victims, scaring them away or leading them astray from their paths. 3. Aswang Beware of strange people following you around, because you'll never know which one is real and which one would prey on your guts and organs. Aswang usually assume the countenance of ordinary humans, but, being shape shifters, they also have the ability to transform into a wild, voracious beast once they find prospective victims. They can take the form of a dog, boar, bull or any animal, and they prey on weaker victims like children and old people, but will also attack any single unguarded individual. 4. Tiyanak When wandering in or near forested areas, be on the alert when you hear the sound of an infant crying. Don't try to look for it, lest you be the victim of the Tiyanak. The tiyanak is vampiric in nature and begins its monstrous life as an aborted or dead fetus that was not baptized before burial. Evil spirits possess the infant's body and use it to kill by eating the victim's inner organs and drinking its blood. 5. Pugot Stay clear of abandoned structures or old, big trees for you might encounter a freaky monster carrying decapitated heads. Called the Pugot, this monster manifests itself as a self-beheaded ghost, or as a headless giant waiting in lonely places to behead its unlucky victim. 6. Nuno sa Punso Never ever play on anthills for you might disturb the Nuno sa Punso. These dwarf-like creatures (duwende or encantado) curse disrespectful passersby who even inadvertently disturb or destroy their habitation. So the next time you wander into unfamiliar territory, tread carefully and don't forget to ask permission and say tabi-tabi po mga nuno. 7. Kapre A Kapre is a huge terrifying beast with glowing eyes which is found dwelling in large trees or abandoned houses and ruins. It is usually depicted smoking a leg-sized cigar that never burns out. 8. Mangkukulam The Mangkukulam's favorite implements for maiming, torturing and sometimes killing its chosen victims are the karayom at manyika (needle and doll). The doll serves as the effigy of the victim; upon pricking it with the cursed needle, the victim instantly feels pain through the effects of malicious, imitative magic. The Mngkukulam will usually focus on the victim's heart or vital organs. What sets the Mangkukulam apart from the rest of the ghouls and monsters in this list is that the Mangkukulam is an ordinary human being albeit twisted by evil. 9. Wak-wak (no img) The Wak-wak is a bird-like creature that comes out at night looking for victims. The sound the Wak-wak makes is usually associated with the presence of an Unglu (vampire); other folkloric sources indicate that the Wak-wak may itself be a form of the Unglu. 10. Sigbin isa ito sa pinanniwalaan nilang sigbin The Sigbin is a ghoul in Philippine Mythology that roams for prey at night, sucking the blood off their would-be victims by using their shadows. The creature walks backwards with their heads lowered between their hind legs. The Sigbin is dog-like in appearance so beware of strange dogs!
  6. Adapted from folklore by Craig Dominey and Curtis Richardson On the Georgia coast, there is an island called St.Simons Island – a beautiful place where the sea laps against the sandy shores, the Spanish moss sways gently in the salty breeze, and there is a real sense of peace. But St. Simons is also a place of mysterious and tragic stories – some true, and some folktales that have become legends. One of these stories concerns a lone grave marker sitting a few yards off the main highway. What is strange about this grave is that no vegetation grows around it – no trees, no grass, and no moss. The most popular version of this story takes place over 100 years ago, when large rice plantations were in operation up and down the coast. One day, the plantation owners on St. Simons decided they were going to hire a schoolmarm to teach their children. So they found a young woman from Ohio named Margaret to come down and live on the island as the local teacher. She was a wise woman, for she had traveled in Europe and had attended a number of well-known schools. Margaret would teach the white plantation children during the day – but at night, she would teach the black slave children whose parents toiled day and night on the plantations. The plantation owners did not like this, for they did not want the slaves to be educated in any way. They thought that, if the slaves became educated, they might rise up and attack their captors. But Margaret was headstrong, for she had seen how other people lived around the world, and firmly believed that blacks were as deserving of an education as whites. Since Margaret was such a good teacher, the white plantation owners reluctantly looked the other way. But they became very suspicious of Margaret, and kept a close eye on her. There was one little slave boy named Joshua who Margaret liked to teach the most. Joshua soaked up knowledge like a sponge, for he felt that a good education was his ticket to freedom. Joshua especially loved English literature and poetry. Long after the other slave children had left school, he would stick around and beg Margaret to read to him some more. Margaret was truly touched by Joshua’s eagerness, and found herself growing close to him. But Joshua never got a chance to use his newfound knowledge. One day, a slave uprising erupted on one of the plantations. During the furor, a white slave owner was killed. Later that evening, an angry white mob rode through the island and started beating the horrified slaves, whether they were part of the uprising or not. They kicked down the door of Joshua’s home and savagely attacked his parents. When Joshua leapt to his mother’s defense, a young white man viciously clubbed him in the head, killing him instantly. Margaret took the news of Joshua’s death hard. She was so grief stricken that she isolated herself from the community. The only time she would speak to anyone was when she was teaching the children. The rest of the time, she wandered the backroads of the island, alone and sad. It was while she was walking down an island road one day that she had a strange feeling she was being watched. She looked above her and saw a large black raven flying overhead, seemingly following her. As the days passed, the same raven would always seem to be around her. Whenever she arrived at school in the morning, the raven would perch upon the windowsill and watch her teach the children. And when she would go home, the raven would follow her and perch in a tree near her front door. At the end of one of the school days, after all of the children had left, Margaret was cleaning the classroom while the raven watched her from the window. She looked at the bird and thought about how much she missed Joshua, for this was the time of day she used to teach him one-on-one. She picked up a poetry book and began to read to the raven. The raven bobbed its head up and down, as if understanding what Margaret was reading. Margaret smiled and read more poetry to the bird, and before she knew it, she was reading lessons to the bird every day after school. Margaret would sometimes laugh at herself for reading aloud to a bird, but strange as it was, she found it to be a good way to deal with her grief. Late one afternoon, some white children returned to school to pick up some belongings they had left behind. When they got to the school, they saw Margaret speaking to the large black raven on the windowsill, reading the day’s lesson. They ran back to their parents screaming, “The teacher’s a witch! She’s a witch! She’s brought that little black boy Joshua back from the dead as a bird!” The parents didn’t believe them at first, but they agreed to accompany the children back to the schoolhouse. When they got there, they also saw Margaret reading poetry aloud to the bird. When they saw Margaret smile at the bird, and the bird nod its head back, the parents ran back to town and, like their children before them, screamed “The teacher’s a witch!” The islanders were a close-knit, fiercely religious community, and were frightened of anyone who practiced black magic or witchcraft. The rumors of Margaret being a witch also fueled many islanders’ long-held suspicions about her. So it wasn’t long before an angry white mob marched to the school, dragged Margaret outside and killed her, leaving her body for the vultures. When the time came to bury her body, one of the plantation owners had pity for Margaret. He tried to have her buried at Christ’s Church, a famous church on the island where John Wesley had preached. But the other plantation owners wouldn’t hear of a witch being buried in a church cemetery, or in any other cemetery on the island. So the kind owner buried her body on a small piece of land he owned off the main road. He had a grave marker made for her that was inscribed with three simple words – “A Beloved Teacher.” Within a month, the locals who happened to visit the grave noticed that all the vegetation had died within a few feet of where Margaret was buried. And for the next hundred years, nothing grew around the grave – no trees, no grass, no moss. If you’re ever in the area, ask one of the locals where the grave marker is and see for yourself. You’ll see that nothing grows around where they buried the beloved teacher. http://themoonlitroad.com/

  11. 1. Apple iPhone 4g The appple iphone has always been riding the competition with its powerful application base, specifications, design and its great features. The 4g iphone uses high quality glass that is scratch resistant and durable which is complimented by a high resolution screen. The A4 chip from apple increases performance and increases battery efficiency. Impressive gaming, photos and a large app base is the iphone 4Gs greatest advantage. 2. Motorola Droid 2 The Motorola Droid 2 has been a significant improvement from the previous models in the Droid series. The Android powered phone includes a 1 GHZ processor and has a 8GB internal memory along with a 32GB expandable memory. The Droid 2 incorporates a slide keyboard and it consists of a faster 512MB RAM. However the minus point is the lack of front camera. The great touch screen and the impressive sound quality along with media capabilities is one of Droid 2′s plus points. It is a great phone for those who would like a smart phone with a physical keyboard. 3. HTC Hd7 In my eyes, the HTC is the most beautiful phone incorporating the Windows Phone 7 Operating System. The Windows Phone OS is great to use in this phone because of its large 4.3 inch screen. The touch is impressively great with its fast processor and RAM. There is no lag whiles using and swooping through the applications. The apps are increasing as the days pass by and its just a matter of time when it reaches the Android and Apple range. With the impressive huge screen, user friendly interface and responsive touch screen, the HD7 is a great phone which takes it to the top of the competition. 4. Blackberry Bold 9780 Blackberry has been making a lot of user friendly phones and the Blackberry Bold 9780 is undoubtedly the most impressive non touch screen phone. The 9780 runs on the new Blackberry 6 OS and with a 512 MB RAM. The built quality is impressive and so is the Qwerty keyboard. The fluid feel of navigation is also impressive. The Blackberry Bold 9780 is a great phone and is recommended for those people who would prefer a non touch phone. 5. Blackberry Torch 9800 Even though the Blackberry bold 9780 was a great phone, it was necessary to blend in with the competition. Blackberry introduced this touch phone to compete directly with the iphone and other devices running on Android and Windows OS. The screen is a little bit disappointing and so is the video shooting only in VGA. The phone is for those who would like a touch phone which has a better Internet and media experience than the Blackberry Bold 9780 phone. 6. Samsung Nexus S The Samsung Nexus S is one of the best phones that features the Android OS. The best feature of the Nexus S is its brilliantly bright and clear display which makes the applications look really good. The Nexus S comes with the Android 2.3 OS (Gingerbread) and with a powerful 1 Ghz Hummingbird Processor. It is fast and a great performer. The sleek design though it looks good, is fragile! It does not have an expandable memory and is not a significant change in features over its predecessor. 7. Samsung Epic 4G The Samsung Epic 4G has one of the most impressive displays in the competition, well of course behind the HTC HD7. The 1Ghz processor helps in the fast use of the phone. It also has a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and also include a camera in the front. The Epic 4G supports Sprints 4G Wimax network. The slide out keyboard is an added advantage to most smart phones. The Epic is great for multimedia usage. If people dont mind spending the extra cash and carry the extra bulk, the Samsung Epic 4G is the phone for you! 8. Nokia N8 Easily, the best Nokia phone! The Nokia N8 runs on a new Symbian 3 OS. The N8 provides a great user experience with its incredible screen, screen is to keyboard position and its incredible speed. The Nokia N8s best feature is the 12 mp camera and 720p video at 25 fps which can replace a digital camera. It is weirdly expensive and the battery cannot be changed. The N8 is not as fast as its competitors but the features are pretty impressive. 9. Samsung Focus The Windows Phone 7 OS is just a bliss in this phone. The Focus is a freakishly fast phone with great multimedia experience. Internet experience is also top notch in this phone. Social networking is made fun and easy and so is business applications. Windows comes with great games, which the Focus has. Like most Samsungs new smart phones, the Focus comes with a brilliant screen. Windows apps are few in the market right now, but in time it will increase. No front camera available in the Samsung Focus. Memory cards which are approved by Windows OS can only be used. 10. LG Quantum The LG Quantum is another windows phone running on the Windows Phone 7 OS. The phone feels solid and is heavy. The small screen is a disadvantage but has a 5 mp camera and HD recording. The Quantum is the only phone with a Qwerty keyboard and is one of the strong plus points. The LG Quantum Windows phone is a solid phone and is for those people who would like a Windows phone with a Qwerty keyboard.

  15. 1. Hickory North Carolina: Donny Guy robbed two cash registers from a restaurant and vanished. Not for too long though.

Pennsylvania USA: Allen Koch walked up to the Citizens and Northern Bank at 12.01pm wearing a ski mask and gloves and holding a gun. Unfortunately the bank was closed and he was unable to enter it. His license plate was noted by the bank employees and he was arrested on the charges of attempted robbery. 3. Manizales, Columbia: This thief chose the wrong house to rob! It was the home of Christian Garces, a Pan-American karate champion and her fellow karate instructors and trainees. They caught him and beat him up, and hopefully scared him for life. 4. Windsor, Ontario: Daniel Glen did not want to rob a store which did not have enough money to make it worthwhile. Hence he called up the sales clerk to find out how much money there was in the cash register. When he walked in to rob the cash register, the police were ready and waiting for him. 5. Wolverhampton, England: Clive Halford was an experienced criminal, but his greed did him in. He loaded his stolen truck with 18 pallets of stolen nickel and copper.

Obviously he had not learnt his lesson from an earlier theft where his car’s suspension had broken down due to the load of stolen goods. 6. York, Pennsylvania: Joseph Goetz was very unsuccessful when he tried to rob a bank. The first teller he went to fainted, the next two he went to claimed that they had no cash in their drawers.

The clerk refused to give it to him saying that he was underage and he would need to see some identification before he could take it. The robber produced his driving license to show his ID. Once he had left the store the cashier promptly called the police and told them the name and address of the robber. 8. Oklahoma City: Dennis Newton was on trial for robbing a convenience store and was defending himself. When the store manager identified him as the robber he jumped up and screamed ” I should have blown your ….. head off “, and then tried to correct himself by saying, ” If I had been the one that was there”. Needless to say that he was convicted. 9. Detroit, Michigan: Two officers were demonstrating their patrol car’s felon locating system to the children of a neighbourhood. R.C.Gaitlan walked up to them and asked them about the process. To show him how the system worked, they asked him to produce any identification. When they placed his driver’s license in the system, they promptly arrested him, since he was wanted for a robbery committed two years ago. 10. San Francisco: This one takes the cake. While standing in line at the Bank of America, with a stick-up note in his hand, a thief began to worry about whether anyone had seen him write the note. So he walked across the road to the Wells Fargo bank and decided to rob them instead. The smart teller there told him that since the note was written on a Bank of America deposit slip she could not give him the money and he should go back there. Our not-so-bright thief agreed with her and walked back to rob Bank of America, where of course the police were waiting for him!
